The Environmental Studies Minor is open to students from all majors and colleges at UCSD. It offers a broad interdisciplinary perspective on the environmental aspects of any field of study. 21st century scientists, engineers, policy-makers, and business leaders alike will be challenged to find solutions to problems such as global warming, energy use, and the decline in natural ecosystems and biodiversity. And educators at every level will be called upon to inform their students about how environmental issues affect our lives and how we can make our lifestyles more sustainable.
Some credit toward the minor may be gained through independent study, field research, study abroad, the Academic Internship Program, and others (prior approval strongly recommended). Minor declarations, petitions for petitionable courses as well as transfer work and individual additions to the listed courses must be approved by the Chair of the Environmental Studies Steering Committee.
